Russian carmaker Aurus, best known for producing President Vladimir Putin's new bulletproof limo, delivered a new limousine to the North Korean dictator on behalf of the Russian government. 

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed the limousine was delivered to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He said the vehicle was a gift following Putin's visit last year when Kim took great interest in the limo. 


"When the head of the DPRK [North Korea] was at the Vostochny cosmodrome, he looked at this car, Putin showed it to him personally, and like many people, Kim liked this car," Peskov said when asked by reporters about the gift, who The Guardian quoted. 

"So this decision was made," Peskov said, adding, "North Korea is our neighbor, our close neighbor, and we intend, and will continue, to develop our relations with all neighbors, including North Korea." 

North Korea's state-run media outlet KCNA also confirmed the Russian-made limousine arrived in Pyongyang. 

KCNA quoted Kim's sister, who said, "courteously conveyed Kim Jong-un's thanks to Putin to the Russian side, saying that the gift serves as a clear demonstration of the special personal relations between the top leaders."
